Gluten Intolerance Camp

Back to "All About Camp Sealth"

The Gluten Intolerance Group provides healthy gluten-free alternatives for kids who are gluten intolerant.

Staff and volunteers from the Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG) partner with Camp Sealth during one week of the summer to prepare gluten-free meals and snacks for kids with Celiac disease. Food is prepared in a separate, gluten-free kitchen. Kids can enroll in any in-camp program during the designated GIG week. Most other special diets can be accommodated in addition to gluten intolerance.

Please note that the entire camp is not gluten-free; other campers attending camp at the same time will be eating food containing gluten. We do make every effort to avoid cross-contamination.

Camp Sealth provides gluten-free options during all camp sessions, however the food prepared during the GIG session is prepared by dedicated staff in a contamination-free kitchen. If your child is highly sensitive to gluten, we recommend attending this dedicated session.

Dates for the 2021 season will be announced in the fall. To sign up for the GIG program, please contact Michael McGrath at michaelm@campfireseattle.org or by phone at 206-826-8937. Financial assistance may be available to those who are eligible. Contact the GIG for more information.

Note: The GIG camp is offered at the same time as the ADA camp for kids with diabetes. If you have a child with both diabetes and gluten intolerance, please contact Camp Sealth for information on how to register.
